(Continued)

 

(1) The Bidding Shipper's legal name and the name, title, address and phone number

of the individual who will authorize the acquisition of the available capacity.

 

(2) The level of daily firm entitlements that the Bidding Shipper requests and the

minimum quantity it will accept.

 

(3) The requested effective date and the term of the acquisition.

 

(4) The Bidding Shipper's bid, addressing all criteria required by the Releasing Shipper.

 

The Bidding Shipper shall be entitled to withdraw its bid either via GEMStm or EDM,

prior to the end of the bidding period, if such withdrawal is not due to lower bids

by other Shippers. Bidding Shipper cannot withdraw its bid after the Bidding

Period ends. If Bidding Shipper withdraws its bid, it may not resubmit a lower bid.

If Bidding Shipper submits a higher bid, lower bids previously submitted by Bidding

Shipper will be automatically eliminated. A Bidding Shipper may submit multiple

bids where the term or quantity involved in each bid is different. Transporter

shall post all information provided by Bidding Shippers, except the information

provided in Section 21.1(h)(1), above.

 

The bids for the given capacity release offer should adhere to the method specified

by the Releasing Shipper. The bidder may bid the maximum reservation rate in ANR's

Tariff as an alternative to the method specified by the Releasing Shipper, except

when the release is index-based for a term of one year or less or utilizes market-

based rates. No bid shall exceed the maximum applicable transportation rates, in

addition to any and all applicable fees and surcharges, as specified in this

Tariff, provided, however, that such limitation shall not apply to any bid for

release of capacity with a term of one (1) year or less and is to take effect on or

before one (1) year from the date on which the Transporter is notified of the

release. The quantity or the requested term of the release of such bid shall not

exceed the maximum quantity or term specified in the executed Agreement.

 

(i) Pre-arranged Release not subject to bidding. Releasing Shipper shall have the right

to release capacity to a pre-arranged Replacement Shipper without posting an offer

via Electronic Communication if: Replacement Shipper will either confirm via

GEMStm or EDM the terms and conditions of the Pre-arranged Release, meets all other

terms and conditions of the release, and the release is either:

(a) if the capacity release is for a period of one (1) year or less, the asset

manager's delivery or purchase obligation must apply on any day during a

minimum period of the lesser of five (5) months (or 155 days) or the term of

the release;
